We're in this Together: Intentional Design of Social Relationships with AIED Systems

Erin Walker, Amy Ogan
2016 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education  
To achieve this vision, as a field, we will need to build understanding of how relationships form in human-technology settings, and how educational technologies should be advanced to support the assessment  ...  We envision a future in which AIED systems adaptively create social relationships with their learners in addition to modeling student learning and providing adaptive cognitive support.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported in part by NSF CISE-IIS-1451431, NSF CISE-IIS-1249406, NSF-CISE-IIS-1464204, and NSF CISE-IIS-1523162.

Torrey Trust, Daniel G. Krutka, Jeffrey Paul Carpenter
2016 Computers & Education  
Once I found these communities online, especially on Twitter, I started being that force in person as well. I encourage my colleagues to share with me and I share with them. Together we are better.  ...  These findings have implications for defining the present and future of teacher learning in a digital age.  ...  A Skype conference with a teacher collaborator in Egypt during a time of unrest, prompted a conversation on censorship.  ...

Bradley Goodman, Frank Linton, Robert Gaimari
2015 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education  
A simulated learning companion, acting as a peer in an intelligent tutoring environment ensures the availability of a collaborator and encourages the student to learn collaboratively, while drawing upon  ...  Our 1998 paper BEncouraging Student Reflection and Articulation using a Learning Companion^ ) was a stepping stone in the progression of learning companions for intelligent tutoring systems (ITS).  ...  Work on this paper was partially supported by the Collaboration and Social Computing Department of the Information Technologies Division at The MITRE Corporation.  ...

Let Me Guide You! Pedagogical Interaction Style For A Robot In Children'S Education

Rifca Peters, Joost Broekens, Mark A. Neerincx
2015 Zenodo  
In this position paper we present our view as a starting point for the management of this interaction style. As a basis for the proposition, pedagogic and motivational theories are used.  ...  Pedagogical Agents (PAs) are being developed to adapt to the users knowledge, and efforts are made in strategic action selection: what action is appropriate given the context and user preference.  ...  The paper is organized as follows. Section 2 provides a brief summary and discussion of the state of the art in social robots and pedagogical agents.  ...

A Social-Cognitive Framework for Pedagogical Agents as Learning Companions

Yanghee Kim, Amy L. Baylor
2006 Educational technology research and development  
Though no claim of peer equivalence is made, pedagogical agents as learning companions (PALs)-animated digital characters functioning to simulate human-peer-like interaction-might provide an opportunity  ...  Seminal psychologists such as Vygotsky, Piaget, and Bandura have theorized that social interaction is a key mechanism in the process of learning and development.  ...  In contrast to those agent roles, pedagogical agents as learning companions (PALs) adopt a peer metaphor, where the agent's function is to learn with the learner and act as a simulated peer.  ...

Pedagogical Agents as Learning Companions: The Role of Agent Competency and Type of Interaction

Yanghee Kim, Amy L. Baylor
2006 Educational technology research and development  
This study was designed to examine the effects of the competency (low vs. high) and interaction type (proactive vs. responsive) of pedagogical agents as learning companions (PALs) on learning, self-efficacy  ...  Students who worked with the high-competency PAL in both proactive and responsive conditions achieved higher scores in applying what they had learned and showed more positive attitudes towards the PAL.  ...  Pedagogical Agents as Learning Companions 30  ...

Face-to-Face Interaction with Pedagogical Agents, Twenty Years Later

W. Lewis Johnson, James C. Lester
2015 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education  
and surveyed a new paradigm for interactive learning environments: animated pedagogical agents.  ...  Twenty years have elapsed since work began on animated pedagogical agents. This article re-examines the concepts and predictions in the 2000 article in the context of the current state of the field.  ...  Jeff's ideas and research contributions laid much of the groundwork for subsequent work on pedagogical agents.  ...

Collaborative E-Learning With Multiple Imaginary Co-Learner: Design, Issues And Implementation

Melvin Ballera, Mosbah Mohamed Elssaedi, Ahmed Khalil Zohdy
2013 Zenodo  
This paper, designed a collaborative learning environment where agent act as co-learner, can play different roles during interaction.  ...  Since different roles have been assigned to the agent, learner will assume that multiple co-learner exists to help and guide him all throughout the collaborative problem solving process, but in fact, alone  ...  For example an agent can act as learning companions [4] , collaborator and competitor [7] , peer tutor [13] . Such discussion focuses on how agents fulfill their educational duties.  ...

Philip Sheridan Buffum, Kristy Elizabeth Boyer, Eric N. Wiebe, Bradford W. Mott, James C. Lester
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In a pilot study of two 7 th grade classrooms, female students responded especially positively to the learning companion, eliminating the gender gap in reported frustration.  ...  The results suggest that introducing learning companions can directly contribute to making the benefits of game-based learning equitable for all learners.  ...  This work is supported in part by the National Science Foundation through Grants CNS-113897, CNS-1042468, and IIS-1409639.  ...

Contest-Kid: a competitive distributed social learning environment [chapter]

Tak-Wai Chan, Jong-An Lai
1995 World Conference on Computers in Education VI  
Social learning systems encompass a range of emerging learning environments which involve various combinations of agents: 'virtual learning companions' or real human students with different levels of knowledge  ...  These agents compete against each other or work together across connected machines with or without intervention of a real or computerized teacher.  ...  The learning companion, a virtual agent, learns together with the student under the guidance of another virtual agent, the computerized teacher.  ...

Instructing a Teachable Agent with Low or High Self-Efficacy – Does Similarity Attract?

Betty Tärning, Annika Silvervarg, Agneta Gulz, Magnus Haake
2018 International Journal of Artificial Intelligence in Education  
As a preliminary conclusion, on the basis of the results of this study, we propose that teachable agents should preferably be designed to have low self-efficacy.  ...  Furthermore, students with low self-efficacy significantly increased their selfefficacy in the matched condition, i.e. when instructing a teachable agent with low selfefficacy.  ...  In most other studies the pedagogical agent is a peer or a collaborator (or both).  ...
